Sean Spicer likely out as press secretary, Laura Ingraham reportedly among possible replacements

White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer will take on a new, elevated role in the Trump administration, White House officials said Monday. Recently, the White House has begun to stipulate that they are both off-camera and off-mic. Spicer has served as press secretary since January when President Donald Trump was sworn into office.

"If he can't come out and answer the questions and they are just not going to do on camera or audio, why are we having these briefings in the first place?"

Comey told lawmakers that he hoped the tapes did exist since he was confident they would corroborate his memo. "It just doesn't make any sense to me", he added. "And it just feels like we are slowly but surely being dragged into a new normal in this country where the president of the United Stats is allowed to insulate himself from answering hard questions".

The White House has suggested radical changes to the daily press briefing in the past, at one point threatening to move it away from the White House entirely. The administration has yet to name a replacement to take over his duties as press secretary, though they have indicated they are very fond of Sarah Huckabee Sanders, according to Fox News' John Roberts. Some networks, like CNN, MSNBC, and C-SPAN, have instead carried the audio of the briefings live.
